Beauty Queen Alicia Machado And Sarah Palin Confuse The Koreas

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Venezuela`s former Miss Universe Alicia Machado closed her Twitter account after being mocked for confusing the Koreas with China.

Concerned by North Korea`s artillery attack on a South Korean island, the 1996 beauty queen winner got muddled when tweeting for world peace via her @aliciamachado77 account.
`Tonight I want to ask you to join me in a prayer for peace, that these attacks between the Chinas do not make our situation worse,` she wrote late on Tuesday.
Her gaffe unleashed a rush of insulting posts, prompting her to go offline. `I now have a lot of psychopaths on the account and it`s best I start another one, kisses,` she signed off, according to Venezuelan media."

Let`s show Alicia Machado some compassion, after all she`s just a beauty queen and not a presidential aspirant. Former beauty queen and presidential hopeful Sarah Palin thinks that North Korea is our friend. We should heap ridicule on Sarah Palin, not on Alicia Machado. 
Beauty queens frequently make public appeals for world peace, I think it`s in their contract. We shouldn`t expect them to be aware of all of the nuances of the conflicts around the world. A word of advice for beauty queens: Just pray for world peace, don`t get into any specifics. 
Alicia, I beg you please reopen your Twitter account, you are a beautiful woman and you have a lot of fans. Sarah Palin, please close your Twitter account, we are tired of your idiotic statements.
